High Line Canal History & Nature Walk at Seven Stones

Posted on October 4, 2017 in Community Events Seven Stones

Fall is here–time to head outside and enjoy the changing colors and wildlife!

The Roxborough Area Historical Society and Seven Stones Botanical Gardens Cemetery are delighted to host an outdoor event featuring the High Line Canal Conservancy and Audubon Society of Greater Denver on Saturday, October 28, from 9 to 11 a.m.

Harriet Crittenden LaMair, executive director of the conservancy, will provide a unique historical overview of the High Line Canal, focusing on highlights from our Roxborough area. She will also give an update on the next phases of the canal conservation project. We are also pleased to share Harriet’s recent honor as the recipient of the Jane Silverstein Ries Award, which recognizes a person, group or organization that demonstrates a pioneering sense of awareness and stewardship of land-use values in the Rocky Mountain region.

Following Harriet’s historical presentation, the program will transition to the High Line Canal itself with a 40-minute guided walk led by Kate Hogan, community outreach coordinator with the Audubon Society of Greater Denver. Kate will share the unique characteristics of local birds we see along the trail, and Harriet will point out key aspects of the canal during our walk. Attendees will return to the outdoor auburn-colored shelter at Seven Stones and conclude with light refreshments and Q&A.

Copies of the book Roxborough (Images of America) will be available for purchase, as well as Silica bricks for the RAHS “Save the Kiln” campaign.

Please RSVP via Seven Stones’ Website or Facebook Event.

We look forward to seeing you outside this fall!
